No. It doesn't say that at all. Don't use "dot." It makes no sense.

Yes, it does. But "dot" still doesn't communicate anything. And the slogan sounds too much like Maxwell House Coffee's "Good to the last drop."

I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some/all of the words you're actually asking us about.

fjspro, by 'dot', do you perchance mean the punctuation mark known as a period? There's a period at the end of this sentence.

Or perhaps the dot over an "i" or a "j". The phrase "to dot the is and cross the t​s" means to take care of every last tiny detail.

Precisely why I said in my example "Ironclad up to the last dot" as a slogan for a law firm specializing in probate law, i.e. wills and living trusts, makes eminent sense -----"dot the i's and cross the t's". For those who have broad experience and can think outside the box, this is self-evident.

Then I have narrow experience and think inside some box. "The last dot" doesn't say that to me. It just makes me think of that annoying "More dots" Youtube (and all the tee-shirts it inspired).

I wouldn't try to rework that slogan. I'd just make up a different one.
